These gorgeous Golden South Sea pearls from the Jewelmer pearl farm in the Philippines pack a colorful punch. What a way to start the New Year!
The global jewellery industry is currently witnessing an unprecedented increase sustainable jewellery practices. With a growing awareness of the large carbon footprint of the global jewellery and gem industry, the conscious consumer is always looking for jewellery that meets global sustainability standards. Of all the gems in the world, salt-water cultured pearls are perhaps the most sustainably produced.
Environmental sustainability is the cornerstone of salt-water pearl farming. According to Dr. Cavalieri, President of CIBJO, The World Jewellery Federation, “When a consumer buys an item of pearl jewellery, they should feel that they have invested in our planet’s long-term survival, rather than having taken advantage of it.”
Pearl farmers know that the most beautiful pearls come from healthy oysters. In turn, the health of the oysters depends upon the quality of sea water in which they are grown, As a result, pearl farmers make every effort to keep the waters in and around the farms pristine.
These marine conservation efforts may include a restriction on overfishing and efforts to minimise all forms of plastic pollution. This has a direct impact on the health of the oysters but an indirect and more significant effect on marine conservation and the harmonious ecosystem surrounding the farm, most especially on the well being of coral reefs.
Kevin Canning, CEO of Pearls of Joy, having visited numerous pearl farms all over the world and seen many of these sustainable practices first hand, very aptly observed “Pearl farmers are the unsung heroes in the fight to save our oceans, they are the canary in the coal mine. Yet almost nobody knows of their work and how in many cases are single-handedly protecting and restoring local ecosystems. There's good reason to wear pearls proudly.”
